First of all when you are looking at buying a used car, see if you can have a certified technician look at it (someone from a different dealership) before you buy. Things to look at for sure:

1. Prop shaft (as indicated in solution #1). Once you get up over 50K miles it tends to whine, definitely in colder climates.
2. Hoses. The X-type is known to spit out "Evap Leak" codes (check engine light will come on intermittently). Remove the plastic cover from the engine block and check the hoses there for cracks and splits. The hoses get hot when the engine is running and cool down when the engine is turned off. It makes the hoses brittle and causes cracks/splitting, etc.
3. Have the transmission checked. This car has a "lubed for life" system on a lot of the parts, including the tranny.
4. Have the transfer case checked. This controls your AWD and is known to start to fail after the 60K mile mark. (most dealerships will tell you the x-type needs its auto tranny replaced every 3-5 years!)

Not to scare you.. but transmission issues, whining issues related to prop shaft and others have been experienced.. see for more.. ive learned a lot from them.. its a great car but needs a lot of attention in order to keep it going once it gets to that "high" mileage point.. mine is now 125K

We have owned the car for 4 years and only 78,000 miles. This is the first problem we have had. My wife loves the car. The engine fan is not comming on and the car is overheating when in stop and go...

Maybe it´s the thermostat, it´s located at the bottom of a "T" called "upper hose", but dealer only sell the entire "T" hose, not only the thermostat

On my 2003 jaguar s-type v8 4.2 my cabin filter is on the passener side. all help web sites say it is on the driver side. i am having a hard time buying this filter. it looks like the ones all the parts...

If your jag is right drive it is located passenger side
Left hand drive is located drivers side
Filters can not be interchanged
Your parts shops must have LHD filters
Check internet for prices,also phone local dealer to compare prices
good luck barry

Are there any things that I should look for when buying a used 1993 Jaguar XJ6?

Dear Shoot2ki1l,
These are great cars when all is well.But they can get expensive quick when they break. If you have a regular mechanic,you should take it in and have him/her run full used car inspection. This way you know exactly what you are buying into. If you do not have a regular mechanic,you can take it to the local Jaguar dealer. They can also run the VIN number to check for open recalls.
The A/C system on this car is R-12. You want to see if it has been changed over to the new R134a refrigerant.If not, you should check your local dealer,or an after market A/C shop, for the cost of the change over and adjust the purchase price.
The only strange problem we have had with this body style is water seeping into the transmission control module. It would cause the transmission to go into a limp in mode until it dried out. It took a little while to figure it out water was causing the concern. Once sealed up,the concern was gone.
I hope this helps.If you need anything else,don't hesitate to drop me a line. Thanks,Chuck

These are chain driven. The only issue I have seen with these are the chain tensioners breaking. Generaly with chain driven engines, the chain will last the life of the vehicle, unless something like the tensioner or guide brakes. If it does break repairs can be fairly expensive.
